SOURCE: Will not accept a SD Card now.

first are you still under warranty, if you are don t tell nikon it was dropped they may not cover it if it was dropped. Tell them it stopped reading cards all of a sudden. See if they can fix. If warranty is up may need to get it repaired yourself.i had similar problem with other name brand camera. i didnt fix though was inexpensive camera. I know nikons are high in price so you may want to get fixed.

SOURCE: My camera won't accept new 2GB SD card. Keep

Do you have pics on the internal memory? You must format the internal memory with no card in the camera. Then, format the card.

SOURCE: Camera won't accept an SD Memory Card anymore

Hello

If the card works in another camera or another card doesn't work in your camera , the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

SOURCE: I can't get the camera to accept a sd memory card.

Are you using a 4GB or higher "SDHC" card with your camera? Note that the S800 can only use "standard" SD cards (those 2GB or less). Fortunately, these are very inexpensive these days, recommend checking on Amazon.
For those that encounter this problem, there are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

How much memmory support does it provide nikon coolpix p4 vr


The P4 has about 23MB of internal memory, which might hold five pictures at the camera's best resolution. The camera also accepts SD cards up to 2GB in size, which should hold several hundred pictures. And, of course, you can use multiple cards.

My Nikon Coolpix P3 camera is not accepting my 4GB, SDHC San disk card?


The P3 works with SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and won't work. You need to go with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I Purchased a new SDHC card from Argos which was 4 GB as the one that came with my Nikon coolpix 3700 is a 16mb I put this new one into my camera and the camera showed that you couldn't use this card,...


Your camera will accept a maximum SD card capacity of 1GB. It simply isn't capable of handling anything of a larger capacity and in particular is incompatible with the more technically advanced SDHC cards.

Your fix is to either replace your camera with a later model or to stick to using SD cards with a maximum 1GB capacity.

Nikon coolpix 3100 - maximum card support?


yes you would. It can inly accept 1GB cards. Just as a tip large capacity cards make it slow to recover from a write after taking a pic so if you can get say 512K cards still use those they recover from writing a lot faster

It says this card cannot be used. what is the biggest sd card i can use?


The S1 uses SD cards. SD cards top out at 2GB, any larger cards are actually SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity). SDHC devices will accept SD cards, but SD devices will not accept SDHC cards. They will fit physically but not electronically.

In fact, the S1 manual does not list any cards larger than 1GB.
